Maple Leafs recall Smith, send Liles to AHL

Forward Trevor Smith was recalled by the Toronto Maple Leafs from the American Hockey League on Friday.

Smith, 28, has one goal in nine games with the Maple Leafs; in seven games with the Toronto Marlies, the club's AHL affiliate, he has four goals, eight assists and a plus-4 rating.

To make room, the Maple Leafs sent defenseman John-Michael Liles to the AHL. He had been a healthy scratch in all six games since being called up to the NHL Oct. 28.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
